NBA franchise unveils renderings of Milwaukee entertainment complex

by Matthew Campelli | 18 Nov 2016

Architecture firm Gensler have released renderings of the entertainment block being designed for National Basketball Association (NBA) franchise the Milwaukee Bucks.

The development is expected to be built adjacent to the new arena proposed for the Bucks, which is being designed by Populous.

Working with local design firm Rinka Chung Architecture, Gensler has designed a complex that includes dining, entertainment and retail outlets.

Hunzinger Construction will manage the building of the development. The existing site is currently being demolished.

A “large public plaza” will be at the centre of the entertainment block, and will likely host farmer’s markets, outdoor concerts, festivals and a seasonal skating rink. A promenade featuring public art, gardens and a water feature will also be included on the site.

Peter Feigin, president of the Milwaukee Bucks, said the space would be “transformational” for the city.

“Our ownership had a bold vision,” he added, “for a flexible space that that will connect the neighbourhood, spur additional development and empower additional local businesses to partner with us in revitalising this portion of the city.”

Both the entertainment block and arena are scheduled to be complete by autumn 2018.
